Big Data in Behavioral Medicine - James M. Rehg
From Katie Gentilello
The explosion of health-related data in the form of electronic health records and genomics has captured the attention of both the machine learning and medical informatics communities. In his talk, Dr. Rehg will describe an emerging opportunity to bring data analytics to bear on the behavioral dimension of health. Among other things, he will discuss advances in mobile sensing, from classical activity monitoring to the recent advent of wearable cameras, and how these rapidly evolving technologies provide new opportunities to continuously-measure behaviors under naturalistic conditions and construct novel predictive models for adverse behavioral outcomes.
